This traditional cottage garden plant is a must! Easy to grow, and making a wonderful cut flower, the blooms are coloured from white and cream to various shades of blue, on tall stems. As a bonus, both seed heads and foliage are attractive.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow shallowly, covering with a thin layer of good quality, moist, but free-draining compost at 59-68F/15-20C. Transplant seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle and grow on, planting out when all risk of frost is past. Give autumn sowings the protection of a cold frame over winter.
